He's got no respect for the dead...
If a human did that he'd be arrested and either sent to an insane asylum or an electric chair depending on the country/state of arrest.

Apex Bomber was introduced with the Powermaster Optimus Prime reissue, which was based on God Ginrai: the original never had that, so the Marvel comics Prime didn't combine with anyone. And Ginrai is no Optimus Prime despite the appearance, though admittedly the (horrible) StarTV dub of Masterforce may say otherwise.
And actually, I knew Ginrai isn't Prime, so I later wondered this:
"Why did I post about Ginrai in the first place??? "
But yes, Ginrai taking the name of Optimus Prime is rather mysterious in the horrible dub.
Not to mention, Shattered Glass Prime doesn't even combine with anyoneSabrblade wrote:1.

2. Ginrai is not Optimus/Convoy.
3. Like JelZe said, Apex Bomber didn't come about until the early-2000s and is a toy-only character without any fiction, therefore Marvel G1 Optimus never combined with anyone.

When Powermaster Prime was release in the US, Godbomber was still in development for release in Japan: several catalogs showed the prototypes, which looked very different from the final toy.
It explains how there's suddenly this other guy with the name/rank of "Prime" when there can only be one.Optimum Supreme wrote:Anyway I love how the mention of a dimension hopping Leo Prime is supposed to clarify something that previously didn't make sense. Yeah, now things are much less complicated.
